Looks like I’m gonna be blogging more for the summer.  It’s good practice for writing, I suppose.  Maybe I should put more thought and effort into my blog posts?  Nah…..

Anyway, I talked to my Relief Society president today about starting a canning group and I ordered a cherry pitter because for some reason I’m way excited about cherry season coming up later this month.  I have a ton of canning stuff, and I even have unopened flats of empty jars in the garage from past years of getting excited about canning.  Plus, I have a TON of canning recipes — 2 books in the house, but also a ton in e-mail because I used to belong to a yahoo! mailing group called Creative Canning Cuisine (CCC) that was all about safe (i.e. FDA approved) canning recipes.  It was a pretty awesome group, just too much e-mail.  Anyway, so I’m excited about people coming to my house and canning.  Cherries.  And cherry pie filling.  And cherry almond jam.  Mmmm.  

Oh, did I mention I’m on a diet?  😛   No wonder I can’t stop thinking about cherry pie.

  1. Sure thing, Cairlissa! We probably won't start till the end of the month because that's when the cherries will be ripe but I'll let you know for sure!
